Our Story

Pack It In consists of myself, Phil, my son, Ru, and our 2 cats, Ellie and Pixie. Our ‘Zero Waste ’ journey has been a long time in the making and we want to share what we have learned in the hope that we can work towards a much greener future.

For a long time now, I have been an advocate of using reusables and recycling but in the last few years, with the advent of the Zero Waste movement, this has crystallised into a need to do something more. Gradually, I have eradicated a great deal of plastic from our household and focused on less-packaged food and self-care items, dragging my son, Ru, along in my wake. But, once some initial changes were completed, it became increasingly difficult to go any further as there weren’t any bulk retail outlets available locally.  Over time I came to the realisation that this was something that I could do myself, and Pack It In is the result. I do hope that you will share this journey with me and join our ever-growing community!
